Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday took a dig at previous governments and said that just like in previous times, when mobile phone screens would freeze, the same way the governments at that time were frozen and outdated.

Speaking at the 7th India Mobile Congress, PM Modi said “10-12 years ago, you must have seen how the mobile phone screen used to get frozen. The situation was similar to previous governments; they were also frozen. There was no use in restarting them, and then we came. After 2014, people stopped using outdated technologies and changing batteries or restarting the system became a futile exercise.”

Prime Minister Modi further said that earlier India was an importer of mobile phones but now it has become the second largest mobile manufacturer in the world.

“India used to be an importer of mobile phones whereas today, India has become the second largest mobile manufacturer in the world. Noting the lack of vision when it came to electronics manufacturing during previous governments. Today is exporting about Rs 2 lakh crores worth of electronics manufactured in the country,” PM Modi added.

The PM also stressed that the government is working in a way that the benefits of technology should reach everyone and everyone should benefit from the resources.

“We believe in the power of democratization. The benefit of development should reach every section and region, everyone should benefit from the resources in India, everyone should have a life of dignity and the benefit of technology should reach everyone. We are working rapidly in this direction. For me, this is the biggest social justice. Collateral-free loans under the Mudra scheme, access to toilets, and DBT through JAM Trinity have one thing in common that is they are ensuring previously inaccessible rights for the common citizens. Bharat Net which has connected about 2 lakh Gram Panchayats with broadband. 10,000 Atal tinkering labs are exposing about 75 lakh children to cutting-edge technology,” PM Modi said.

He further informed that an 80 thousand crore rupees PLI scheme is going on for the development of semiconductors.

“For the success of both hardware and software in the tech ecosystem, it is important that we build a strong semiconductor manufacturing sector in India”, he said, saying that an 80 thousand crore rupees PLI scheme is going on for the development of semiconductors.

“Today, semiconductor companies around the world are investing in semiconductor assembly and testing facilities in collaboration with Indian companies. India’s semiconductor mission is moving forward with the vision of meeting not only its domestic demand but also the needs of the world,” he added. (ANI)
